A  clash  of  kingdoms

Like the Roman Empire, today’s governments or organizations can become centered on power and believe their messages are the “good news.” As Christians, we’re called to proclaim God’s name in all the earth (1 Chronicles 16:8), but how do we do that in the midst of false gospels? Discover how Paul communicated the Good News of Christ to Philippi, a Roman colony that worshipped false gods. Can you live the message as Paul did while he encouraged the church in Philippi to consider itself a colony of heaven, not Rome? Consider your citizenship—and the message you convey to the world—as Ray Vander Laan takes you deeper into the culture of ancient Philippi.

Experience the Bible in historical context as you walk in the footsteps of the second missionary tour of the Apostle Paul in Greece—in locations like Philippi, Thessaloniki, and Delphi. This study begins Wednesday, February 14th and continues through March 21st, 11:00 a.m. until 12:30 p.m., in the Conference Room, Administration Building. Lisa Lail will facilitate. To register, email Lisa or contact the church office at 828-327-9837.
